I told myself “PB, my girl, no more Meteorites for you. They’re getting far too expensive, with less content. Besides, you own so many already!” Naturally, that pep talk didn’t work, for my newest addition to my Meteorites collection is the Guerlain Perles de Legende, released for Christmas 2016. Willpower. What’s that?
I wasn’t going to do a blog post at first, but over on Instagram, I was convinced to – just to keep with tradition. So here it is – Perles de Legende.
I skipped the Guerlain Meteorites releases this year (from memory) I didn’t get the Carousel one, because reports were that it was less suited to an all-over finishing powder, being too pink. I didn’t feel any tugging on the heartstrings either, so I was happy to pass on it.
But for some reason, when I clapped eyes on the Guerlain Perles de Legende, I felt the stirring of feelings I thought were dead. I think it started with the packaging. While constructed like the regular tins, it was the contrast of the deep, bright royal blue and gold, that grabbed me by the … er… balls LOL 😀
